Parent-Helping in the Church School

We have a large and thriving Church School program at First Church, and we hope you can support its success by volunteering to be the Parent Helper in our 11:20 am activities twice during each semester. You can choose to help in your child's Godly Play class, or in the Outdoor Church Offering or Creative Arts Project. 

Each parent-helping shift begins when the children leave the sanctuary around 11:20 am and continues until the end of the worship service (approximately 12:10 pm).

In January 2020, this form will be updated to reflect the Church School's needs for help in the second semester, so come back and sign up again!
